One of my favorite iPhone apps to stay organized with Adult ADD/ADHD is the Due App. Not only do I use this app, but as an ADHD coach I also recommend it to my clients as a useful tool for managing ADD/ADHD.
What exactly is the Due App and how can it help you stay organized with your Attention Deficit?
Due App works by setting reminders for tasks that may be easily forgotten.
Not only can it set a single reminder such as “Don’t forget to mail Grandma’s birthday card,” but it sets routine reminders too, such as “Water the plants” or “Change over the laundry.”
It’s user-friendly and makes it easy to set reminders to chime one time only, or as frequently as necessary! Be that every month, every week, or even daily, Due won’t forget what my ADD brain might.
Due makes those difficult things to remember (like my daily organizing activities and cleaning chores as outlined in my ebook, Organized for Life) become second nature.
Indeed, one of my favorite uses for Due is first thing in the morning when a reminder pops up to think about what we’re having for dinner that evening. Just the frequency of that reminder has taught me to remember dinner, even before Due ever goes off.
To avoid that, I learned to group the information together; for example, instead of setting three separate reminders to sweep the floor, clean the cat box, and dust the table, I simply set a single reminder with all three of those things grouped together.
Voila! Problem solved.
While Due isn’t free, it may just be the best $4.99 I’ve spent on a great app to help me and my ADHD coaching clients stay organized with our forgetful ADD/ADHD brains. It keeps things in my life running smoothly by relieving me from working hard to remember things I’m prone to forget. Instead, Due keeps up with it all for me.
